insights into how political decisions are being made what do you make of the recent events in the middle east and north africa do you think that we're seeing genuine social unrest or are we seeing some kind of orchestrated revolt and if so who do you think is behind all this with a genuine change in some parts of the little things i mean egypt is a critical phase i was concerned in the beginning of the egyptian revolution as to when will we just sort of changing of the chair so that you know maybe something same existing power structure when something really different was happening but after mubarak played kyra you saw really revolutions occurring in every institution we've seen here for example to the clock so that that's the sort of change it's hard to know what's happening in some other countries is different so the situation in libya is clearly has involvement of state actors in it for me or
2:33 pm
it's not something it's being driven by because now it is normal for the neighboring countries to have interconnections with each other and activists in different countries and meet in different countries businesses in different countries and states from the neighboring countries that's normally when outside forces from very very far flung countries start to take an aggressive role in the regional affair. then we have to look a bit more insight into what's going on as normal so what's happening in libya for example is not normal and social networking what role do you think sites like facebook and twitter have played in the revolutions in the middle east how easy would you say it is to manipulate media like facebook in particular. most appalling spying machine that has ever been granted he we have the world's most comprehensive started that it's got people everybody ships and

2:36 pm
at least connect between is it really supporting free speech act was like me you come to the u.k. but on the other hand it is. supporting people like sons of gadhafi and. their information why has wiki leaks released it now i mean it seems sort of sort of to be to be off to the fact is it because obama has recently announced his we're election campaign and obviously we're closing guantanamo was one of his main election promises was a number of reasons why we released now. the primary one is that we are a small organization very committed and last year we came under it's extraordinary attack dog all these things continue to go on and so they really dampen down their ability to move quickly because the timing is good obama has given not only closing guantanamo and it's decided to reopen the drug prices and we now have a situation where even the ministration is that forty eight of these people are

doing just one of them are completely innocent and they should be sent something i mean a painter and somebody so you completely innocent people incarcerated for years and years and years no trial and no one really know no country will rethink how it's really takes for the united states has made from its problems. with nine states was involved in rounding up these innocent people setting up a process that was from the very beginning corrupt there's a reason why they're in guantanamo and not on the u.s. mainland and not you know our country. and that reason was to hide them and keep them outside of a war just like you have caribbean island from creation money laundering roads going to was engaging people hearing let's move on and talk about your media partners one of which is the guardian with whom you are now involved in a dispute that you chose them as your primary english language partner for
2:38 pm
distributing that weeklies cables and now guardian journalists to publish this book on wiki leaks which you say is an attack on you how would you describe thawing that the guards is the guardian starts on whistle blowing and media freedom in general and they are publishing organizations so close they want as much right for them to publish it is as possible that's a natural self interest what they have done with this cable cooking i mean you see incredible reduction over reduction of this is they have pushed the right with the people to know it's a very very age when what they're concerned about is any possible attack on even though we have seen this sort of abuse. of the material that we have provided. several times and the guardian guardian is the worst offender but we saw it also by
2:39 pm
new york plains new york times where you directed a sixty two page cable to two programs and this is completely against the agreement that we routinely set up of on november. last year that agreement was that the only reductions that should take place are to protect people's lives and should be no other. production not to protect reputation not not to protect the guardian's profit i think only to protect lives what happens in the west is that there is no border between the state which is the commercial interests and the ages of the state as a result of privatizing nation i thought i was there and blew it out into the ages of companies and so when you look at how the guardian behaves or how the new york times behaves. it is part of that image of corporate and state interests seamlessly bringing to project the guardian's concern predominantly about being

criticized by these powerful interests about more suit security agents that are driven by oligarchs driven by people powerful enough to push. a court case forward let's talk a little bit about you and what you're going through at the moment you are currently fighting extradition to sweden what are your phase should you be extradited back the problem is in two parts. you know i had states he's trying to get up next edition case for me because united states just today we see a new subpoena coming out of the secret grand jury that is operating you know xander virginia is trying to get up and it's been a large case against them. is. building their
2:41 pm
case and whatever country i mean once it decides to in fact they will try to make struck me from their country and possibly not just me possibly are stuck. the other problem with the sweet execution is that the process itself has been corrupted. so it was corrupted from the very beginning and we're seeing corruption that's when it's media we've seen. all sorts of strange actions in relation to know how these cases progressed what message you think it would send to the world it's a u.k. did turn around almost unexpectedly at this point it seems and refused to extraditing only which country so here's the sort of calculation it's going on in the united kingdom. united kingdom it wants to get the various levels wants because it's good relationship with united states. so it's a u.k.
2:42 pm
was to reject the us extradition order that would pose terrible problems similarly if it was to we took the swedish example that would pose problems for it because it would look like it was seething from harlem and this is the sort of difficult situation in afghanistan we repeatedly think was harboring in large. groups of response to any country which he used to be harboring us as united states of trying to conduct its aggressive response. faces week oppressions the united kingdom. does came to expect me the united states. then it faces a difficult position weekly. which is the ball court people who support us and finally julian who do you consider to be our number one enemy. number one enemy
2:43 pm

2:44 pm
hopeful themes of hope is covered is that really a reward it is thought of in the past fifty years has been a result of media lies in the media couldn't stop it if they had searched the block if they hadn't requested government propaganda are they going to stop what does that mean that means basically populations like words and populations have to be fooled into walls copulations that we've only been open we open our eyes going to war so if we have a good media environment then we'll also have a peaceful environment. thank you very much.
